I have been going to the gym for a while now. Over a year pretty steadily. Before I was just lifting weights. Pushing, Pulling going through the random workout routines and using a trainer to try and cut my gut, some fat and also gain size in certain areas at the same time. My gut to be gone, bigger chest, bigger arms, shoulders and back was what I was aiming for. My legs are pretty solid. I worked hard to build up my max lift levels in the weights and kept hitting plateaus. So I decided I wanted to try something new.
I have been reading and studying and learning and trying out and practicing the NEW fitness sensation that is sweeping gym rats across America off its feet. Crossfit. I mean it just sounds kick ass. I have watched countless hours of YouTube videos, looked at websites, talked to many people and found out that while I am on the right track to a new and improved me, I have been doing somethings wrong and I need to change my mindset from hardcore working out with weights to hardcore training the Crossfit way.
I have had help from a few people that have really given me a hand in learning what to do and how to cross over form just lifting to actually crossfit training. Paige (@GasFamily on Twitter) has been great and she has gone above and beyond in helping me with WOD's (WorkOut of the Day) and then I have relied on my long time friend (ok, he's not) Biggest Loser Super Trainer and Crossfit lover Bob Harper. Bob who has so much information on His Website and then the Crossfit gym he frequents Brickcrossfit has some great info as well. Paige has been great offering advice and passing along WOD's to make it easier for me. She has been doing it a long time and always have great advice for me. Bob as you know is just a guru and has become a leader in the Crossfit movement. Check out this quick video as he goes over some things.
Reebok is a new sponsor for Crossfit and they have a great site which is Reebok Crossfit One . Bob does Crossfit on The Biggest Loser. He does it on his own time. Check it out. If you have questions, go to YouTube, ask Me on twitter, Paige @GasFamily on twitter. Crossfit.com is the main site. And google Crossfit in your city. Read about it. There are so many links and sites you can find to learn about it and get started.
